Neither the grips nor the seat work now and they were both fine prior to the riser kit install.

the entire system won't work if it senses a fault - however the individual sections (front seat, rear seat, grips) will work if they are operational. In other words - as Murgie said - try just the seat heater (front or rear) and see if it works. If so - system works. Now turn on grip heaters - if they don't work and the seat stops working - then you found the problem *well, at least the section. Then you can figure out what happened. Probable pulled/crimped wire, if you get lucky may be able to find the bad section visually.

Who I was yesterday is but a past memory, who I will be tomorrow is in the future. Who I am now and the type of person I am to others, that is what is important now.
